three albums.

1. We Are The Tide - Blind Pilot.
I really can't imagine anyone not falling in love with this album. I sure did. On the first listen. It's my favorite release of 2011 so far. My favorite track is the title track, but the album builds so strongly through each song that it's really not even fair to pinpoint one. Just download it, listen to it, and you'll love it.

2. The Waking Sleep - Katie Herzig.
This album is pure fun, full of really interesting sounds. Sometimes almost sounding experimental. I think it's super happy music. My favorite track is 'Oh My Darlin'"and it's chock full of beautiful strings and a catchy melody. It's just perfect.

3. Peppermint Radio - Kate Walsh. Now, you'll have to bear with me on this one. I know that I posted about this album before, and even put it on my favorite albums of 2010 list, but I recently listened to it over and over while driving to Utah and pretty much fell in love with it all over again. It snuck it's way back into my heart and I can't stop thinking about these songs. The concept behind the album is that Kate chose songs that influenced her and shaped her into the artist she is today. It's an album of covers, and it's simply mesmerizing. The song that plays in my head everyday is 'When Love Breaks Down'. This is the ideal album for a rainy day.
